"Flesh and Finitude"
28 October - 11 November
The exhibition, “Flesh and Finitude”, borrowed from Cary Wolfe’s book, What is Posthumanism (2010) explores the boundaries of human life and body. What is the end of the human and where does something else begin?
This year’s NEoN festival’s theme is ‘Lifespans’ and our exhibition’s aim is to investigate the ‘posthuman condition’, the lifespan of “human” as we know it.
Five artists were invited to provide different points of enquiry into what it means to be human in relation to other species, Nature, objects, technology, and humanity itself.
“Not all of us can say, with any degree of certainty, that we have always been human, or that we are only that.” (Rosi Braidotti, The Posthuman (2013) p.1) Today, when artificial intelligence, 3D printed organs and genetic engineering are a reality, what it means to be human is extended and redesigned. At the same time, technological advancement also reflects on our relationship (and most importantly similarities) with the Other.
Digital and sculptural works reflect on different aspects of human and its boundaries, its uncanny symbiotic relationship with others, held together by a melancholic sense of uncertainty.
They Had Four Years 2018
20 May - 03 June
GENERATORprojects presents the annual group exhibition They Had Four Years. This exhibition features newly commissioned work by 2017 graduates from various art colleges across Scotland. This year there are graduates from Gray’s School of Art (Alice Martin, Kaitlyn Dunsmore, Yvette Bathgate), Glasgow School of Art (Lea Josephine Tetrick) and Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design (Jonny Walker). The pairing of the artists creates an exciting discourse about the relationship of art and science, technology and humanity, interaction with objects and spaces.
